Why Does It Always Have to be Done That Way?

Myth #14

Myth 14: When sitting on a handline, you must place the Keenan Loop in the hose for stability.

Reality: Again, seeing is believing. Set up a flow test with a 2- 1/2” or 3” handline and try to get a flow of at least 300 GPM. First try it with the Keenan Loop and then without. There should be no difference at all in the stability of the line.
